Invitation Information _ An invitation should include all the basics __ address, date, time and the guest of honor, but there are other important nuggets that parents may be wondering about. Indicate if a child should be dropped off or if you'd prefer an adult to stay. (Dropping off usually begins around age 5 or 6, but it's still a good idea to let your preference be known.) If parents do leave their children, get a phone number where they can be reached if there are any problems. Also, note if you are serving food so people know if they need to feed their kids, and if possible, let them know what's on the menu to alert those parents who have kids with allergies. Include an RSVP date and don't feel funny about following up with a phone call if you don't hear back.
Six to Eight Weeks Before the Birthday Party _ Six to eight weeks out is the decision_making period. Decide on a theme, a guest list, a venue, and the entertainment. If you are planning this birthday party for someone else, discuss the people they do (or don't) want at their shindig. If you are planning a surprise party, you will have to find a way to ask covertly. Once you decide on a birthday party theme, order decorations and invitations. When thinking about birthday decoration ideas, consider your venue, the size of your party, and what activities you'll have during the party. Six to eight weeks before the birthday party is also the ideal time to reserve a venue and book entertainment.
